    Hi girls,
    Need a little last minute help on this one. I found vases for my sand ceremony but I can't find words for it. I want it to be joining our families together so I want my mom and his mom to pour he sand. But I can't find any words that the judge can say to let everyone know whats going on. I did see somewhere where they put sand from the beach in first thats white to be the foundation. I don't know ...does anyone have any ideas??

      If you do a google search for Sand Ceremony, you should get a bunch of options.
      If you still don't find anything let me know. I may have saved some in my files.
      Good luck,
      Lizzy
      For the dance, at the reception, Maggie wore her crinoline and a lovely lace top. Looks like Tadd likes it!

        Here is what we are using...before the ceremony starts, the mothers go up and pour sand in, one at a time. Then later the minister says:

        "Kristin and Stephen, you have just sealed your relationship by the giving and receiving of rings and this covenant is a relationship pledge between two people who agree that they will commit themselves to one another throughout their lives. The most beautiful example of this partnership is the marriage relationship. Earlier, the two mothers poured individual colors of sand into the center container. This symbolizes that the marriage is based on the strength of the individuals and their families. Now, I will layer neutral sand, which symbolizes that the marriage is grounded. Today, this marriage relationship is symbolized through the pouring of these two individual containers of sand. One, representing you, Kristin, and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be, and the other representing you, Stephen, and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be. As these two containers of sand are poured into the center container, the individual containers of sand will no longer exist, but will be joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated, our prayer for you today is that your lives together would be longer than the time it would take to separate the individual grains of sand."

        You can change whatever you want...

                    We are going to have our moms use sand from the beach we are getting married on.  It was a neat way to incorporate them into our ceremony!
